What Is Virtual Reality?


Capturing 360 Photo and Video

As students create their own content for VR, students might consider some of the ideas below.

  • Make a video tour of POPCS, highlighting some of the most popular areas on campus (wide open areas tend to work well in VR).

  • Take a series of 360 photos with a set of objects or people hidden in the background of the images for others to find using the VR headset. (Think of this as a virtual hide and seek or Where's Waldo exercise.)

  • Record a video of an event like a sporting event or fine arts performance.

  • Record a timelapse of the SmartLab that you can review in VR. With all the different activities going on in the SmartLab, students will have plenty to review with the VR headset that they wouldn't see normally.

  • Film a walk through a park and then playback the video as a "tiny planet." While students can't really view a tiny planet image or video using the Oculus headset, it is still an awesome way of using a 360 camera.
